Wendell was always a fine, respectful, and humorous gentleman. I had known him since moving to the neighborhood in 2001. He and I had career military service in common and he was always interesting to speak with. Always had a great smile on his face. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He loved his family very much. I am better to have known him.

Wendell and I go back a long way. We have been to school together even through USU. We were sorry to hear of his passing and did not know he had diabetes. We both enjoyed the same things through school I gradutated about one year after he did because I changed my major. He was always someone I enjoyed talking too...and considered a good friend through those years. I graduated a second time in 1961 with my masters and he was great support even though he was married. He will be very missed at the Reunions of High School. I always looked for him and enjoyed our visits. We are sorry to hear he has passed away, and know that you carol may will feel the empty place more than anyone. May the Lord bless you as a family and remember that he really isn't gone. He is only waiting for you. A good Friend, Floyd Veibell
